Created by Oaxacan artisans in San Marcos Tlapazola, this marranito Mexican clay vase brings the beauty of Mexican culture into any space.
About the Artisans: The women of San Marcos Tlapazola are well-known for creating beautiful designs made from red clay. Twice a year, the women from this community venture off to the hills to extract rocks for their creations. The process involves using a rock on the floor as a base and the delicacy of the artisan's hands to carefully mold each design. The final details are added using piece of maiz and jícara. Lastly, the products are taken to a wood oven where they are baked for 8 hours.
Please Note: Each marranito is made to order. Please allow 6-8 weeks for orders to be processed and fulfilled. You will receive an email with tracking info once your order is on the way. Due to COVID-19, there may also be shipping delays.
